How Long is a Piece of String?

A question that started
In Dar Es Salaam
Has puzzled us all
Since the whole World began.

The question is asked
And left dangling there…
No answer is offered,
It just isn’t fair.

If an answers not wanted.
Well that’s just the thing,
How blooming long, is this…
Supposed piece of string?

Now everyone says it
From pauper to King –
It is futile to ask
How long is a piece of string?

I bet it was coined –
By the Emperor Ming…
The inscrutable question,
About daft lengths of string.

Wait a minute, I have it,
Wasn’t it Chow Le Wo Chan
who said string is…
“Twice half the height …

Of, a small Chinese man!”
